Lucia Pica

About the Artist

Born in Naples, Italy, Lucia Pica moved to London over two decades ago to pursue a dream of being a make-up artist where she quickly rose through the ranks.

Now based in Paris, she is often praised for her innovative use of colour palettes and thoroughly modern take on beauty, as well as her talent for creating natural, fresh-faced looks and impossibly dewy skin.

In 2022, Lucia was appointed creative image & make-up partner at Byredo. Previously, Lucia was CHANEL’s global creative make-up and colour designer for six years. She was responsible for developing new products for the beauty line, as well as playing a part in the creation of CHANEL’s beauty campaigns and runway looks.

Her longstanding relationships with prestigious editorial partners include British Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, Interview, Dazed, Self Service, i-D and W Magazine.

She has collaborated with photographers such as Karim Sadli, Alasdair McLellan, Juergen Teller, Steven Meisel, Zoë Ghertner, Harley Weir, Mario Sorrenti, Jamie Hawkesworth, Glen Luchford and Craig McDean, among others.

She represents the next generation of make-up artists who are known as much for their influence across culture as they are for their signature looks.

Pica has been honoured as a Business of Fashion 500 every year since 2015.
